Microsoft threatens Gal Gun release

Dev will fight to include knickers, tentacles.

Outrageous Xbox 360 on-rails shooter Gal Gun has had its release delayed following intervention from Microsoft.

According to Andriasang, the platform holder has taken offence at certain aspects of the ludicrous shoot 'em up, which sees you blasting questionably proportioned schoolgirls with your 'Ecstasy Shot' while on a quest to find true love.

First announced earlier this year at the Tokyo Game Show, the game's mooted January 2011 release date is apparently now on hold.

Developer Alchemist has vowed not to bow to any pressure to make changes though, posting on its website, "Negotiations have started for the great moral cause (pantsu)."

We've been through the game's launch trailer with a fine tooth comb and can't for the life of us figure out exactly what Microsoft might find objectionable. Take a look below and see if you can spot anything.
